Hat/Tip to CNS News.

In 2011 Gallup conducted a survey, asking Americans to estimate how much of the population was homosexual. The results were surprising in that respondents thought that 1 in 4, or 25% of Americans were gay.

Nothing could be farther from the truth, it seems.

Contrary to popular belief, just 1.6 percent of American adults identify as homosexual, compared to 96.6 percent who say they are heterosexual, according to a large-scale, first-of-its-kind government survey recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In 2011, a Gallup survey found that 52 percent of Americans believed that 25 percent of the population was either gay or lesbian. Only 4 percent of people surveyed at that time thought that the homosexual population was less than 5 percent.

The CDC survey also found that 0.7 percent of adults, less than 1 percent, consider themselves bisexual. Another 1.1 percent identified as “something else,” stated “I don’t know the answer,” or refused to provide an answer.

Less than 2% of Americans are gay. That’s a long way from the estimated 25% that Gallup said people believe to be the number. There is a huge gulf between what people believe and the actual number of homosexuals, and we have the Gay Lobby & Gay Activists to thank for that. All you have to do is turn on your television or watch a movie and it’s easy to see where people get the idea that homosexuals make up one quarter of the population.

Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, which is the parent company of, was quoted onSpecial Report with Bret Baier explaining the disparity between public perception and reality when it comes to the actual percentage of homosexuals in the U.S. population.

“This is the ultimate media disconnect. Both news and entertainment bombard Americans with images of gay weddings, gay adoptions, and transgender triumphs, all claiming to be what NBC called ‘the new normal,’” Gainor said. “The CDC numbers prove what we’ve been told might describe Hollywood, but not the rest of America.”

Obama’s Legacy of Failure

The country’s chief narcissist, Barack Obama, has, of course, a very high opinion of himself as President of these United States. At one time or another, President Obama has compared himself favorably with Lincoln, Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Reagan. But, the Washington Examiner reports o the results of a YouGov/Economist survey of 1000 US adults interviewed October 26-28, 2013 on the greatness of Presidents. My guess is that Valerie Jarrett has made sure that Mr. Obama has and will never see the results of this poll.

Polling highest in the category “Great” was Ronald Reagan with 32% followed by Franklin D. Roosevelt at 31%. John F. Kennedy  pulled in 30% and Bill “Slick Willy” Clinton managed to get 27%. President Obama managed to tie Dwight Eisenhower at 14%.

Not all was bad news for Barack Obama, however. He can brag to his children that he came in first in one category. He may not want to mention that the category was “Failure”. Among failed presidents, Barack Obama pulled the highest at 37% followed by G. W. Bush at 32%, Richard Nixon at 30%, and Jimmy Carter at 22%. I bet that Jimmy Carter has these poll results framed and hanging in his office.

But, hey! Cheer up, Barry! There are still a few people out there who continue drinking your Kool-Aid. One of them, Jonathan Zimmerman, had an article published in the Washington Post. He thinks you should be allowed to run for a third term. He said:

Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for re election just as citizens should be allowed to vote for — or against — him. Anything less diminishes our leaders and ourselves.

That guy has been drinking some mighty potent Kool-Aid, hasn’t he? Me? I’m glad we have the 22 Amendment. Too bad it didn’t cover Congressmen and Senators, as well.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Obama Can’t Win a Poll Where Democrats are Over-Sampled +11?


We’ve been covering the fact that pollsters, in their effort to shape opinion, rather than reflect it, have been oversampling Democrats to make it appear that Obama is ahead.  Da Tech Guy has been ahead of the crowd on this, so check out his place.  In the meantime, here is the latest poll to be fudged.  Gateway Pundit has the information…

CNN reported:

It’s all tied up, according to a new national poll released two days before the presidential election.

And the CNN/ORC International survey not only indicates a dead heat in the race for the White House, but also on almost every major indicator of President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney that was tested in the poll.

Then on page 29 of the polling results we find out they over sampled Democrats by 11%.

With the massive problems that the Democrats are having with enthusiasm, and with the Republicans chomping at the bit to vote on Tuesday, it’s beyond all credibility to over-sample at 11%.  Then again, even with oversampling by 11%, Obama can’t do better than a tie?

Yeah, it’s that bad.


November 7, 2012 _ Romney Wins By A Landslide!


In the interest of sanity, I felt compelled to find something up-lifting to write about today. In spite of the left stream Media’s consistent predictions of an Obama win in November, the reports of Romney’s political death are premature. I think it is not out of the realm of possibilities  that Mitt Romney will win by a landslide. A landslide to me would have Romney at 55%, Obama at 41%, and Gary Johnson at 4%. believe it or not, I have some support for being so optimistic.

A dear commenter here at CoF left a link to this Business Insider article that claims Romney has a big October surprise planned for President Obama.

This is what people are still not grasping about Romney: He’s about to open up the money floodgates in a way that Obama can’t match.


Both Romney and Obama have been fundraising consistently for months. But Romney has kept his head down and his account flush, and didn’t try to compete with the Olympics, the Conventions, or the recent mediocre press. He was competent enough to realize that the Obama campaign had to hemorrhage cash in order to maintain their numbers.

And now, he’s got a massive upper hand, which very few people are talking about. Once he and his surrogates carpet bomb the swing states with adverts, by shear mathematics Obama will take a small but predictable dive in the polls.  In the middle of October, Mitt starts looking like a contender again.

We conservatives know and accept that the media is in the tank for Obama and they are going to continue covering for his failures and try to convince voters that a Romney presidency would be a disaster for the middle class. Also, we tend to think that the polls claiming a very tight race or Obama ahead are intentionally biased toward Obama. But, maybe there is a different  explanation of the polls. This article at reports on an organization called UnSkewedPolls. The folks at UnSewedPolls say that the companies doing the polling are using a 2008 model of the voter breakdown between Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. They claim that when these poll  results are unskewed to reflect today’s break down of voters, the results look very different.

While Mitt Romney enjoys a 47 percent to 46 percent lead over President Obama in theRasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll released today, he has taken a 7.8 percent lead in the average of unskewed polls.

So, not as big a spread as I am predicting, But 7.8% is not too shabby. And, I have more supporting evidence of a big Romney win. A moth ago I bookmarked a John Hayward article at Human Events. He tells us about a couple of professor at the University of Colorado that have an amazing track record of predicting electoral college results.

Professors Ken Bickers and Michael Berry, of the University of Colorado, have a system for predicting the Electoral College outcomes of presidential races.  Their model has accurately forecast the winner of every presidential race since 1980.  According to an article published by UC-Boulder, they even got the Perot-flavored election of 1992, and the Bush-Gore photo finish in 2000, right.

This year, the Bickers-Berry model shows Mitt Romney winning with 320 electoral votes to Obama’s 218, with a 20-vote margin of error.  A popular vote margin of 53-47 percent in Romney’s favor is predicted.

I could live with those results! And then there is this article at American Thinker that may help explain why Obama is going to lose big time.

When Barack Obama suddenly changed his position on gay marriage, many people (including me) predicted that this could have a dampening effect on black turnout, because many black churches take their Scripture quite seriously.  It might be too much to expect black pastors to urge their flocks to vote for a Republican (and Mormon) candidate, but staying home and not voting might well be an option to protest the discarding of a bedrock tenet of faith.

The Associated Press is now reporting that this scenario may indeed be developing:

So, cheer up, folks. Obama is toast! I am so up beat that tomorrow I am going to be so bold as to offer some advice to President Romney. and, here is a suggestion for you, dear friends. Share a little fruitcake with Jimmy Buffett.  It’ll make you feel better.

Well, now you know what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

MSM, Leftists Predicting Doom for Romney: Don’t Fall for it


The MSM, and the left (or do I repeat myself?) are using the super secret campaign event video to tar Romney-for telling the truth, mind you-and are predicting doom and gloom for the campaign.  To summarize, I have the following statement…


To see through the nonsense, you have to consider a few facts…

1.  The MSM has been cooking the poll numbers for…well…forever.  If you need confirmation of that, consult Da Tech Guy, who has been on top of it.  In fact, if you want to know one poll more than any other, read this one.  The reasoning is simple; the MSM wants to SHAPE public opinion, not reflect it.  The want to demoralize us, and cause us to give up.  Also, they want to cover the fact that Obama has a MASSIVE enthusiasm problem.

2.  We can NEVER discuss the economy.  The numbers are at best, stagnant, and at the worst, staring down a precipice.  The more stories that can be spewed and spun that are off that topic, the better, for the left, that is.

3.  The MSM will continue to ignore facts that do not  favor the POTUS.  Kathleen Sebelius violated federal law?  Not a story!  Libya warned us of the embassy attacks days in advance?  Didn’t happen!  Fast and Furious?  What, me worry?  Scores of Catholic organizations sue over ObamaCare?  Hmmm, What?  That will continue folks, and when economic numbers come out that don’t show Obama in a good light, it’ll be fudged, spun, or ignored.

I could probably go on and on, but you get the point.  Obama is the one that is facing doom in November, n0t Romney.  And, in spite of the MSM spin to the contrary, have faith that Obama is quite defeatable.

Oh, and by the way, Mother Jones released the full Obama video, but it appears to be slightly less full than originally stated.  Go figure!


MSM Deathwatch: Faith in Media at an all Time Low


What happens when the MSM is continually caught telling lies, ignoring stories that everyone knows about, and basically making it up as they go along?  Well, people stop trusting them! And, that appears to be happening to our friends at the MSM.  Newsbusters has the details…

America’s confidence in TV news has hit a new low, but should anyone be surprised? According to Gallup’s analysis  of their annual Confidence in Institutions survey , only 21 percent of Americans have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in TV news. Newspapers don’t fare much better with only 25 percent of respondents expressing confidence.  Gallup’s survey, which was conducted from June 7-10, was released last month and was predictably ignored by pretty much everyone except Newsbusters’ own Tim Graham who reported on its findings here. Confidence in TV news has seen a seven point drop since last year alone (down from a still-embarrassing 28 percent in 2011). And this survey was conducted before two major cable news networks botched their initial reports on the outcome of the Supreme Court’s ObamaCare decision on June 28.

So what could possibly account for this drop? The answer is simple: the networks refuse to Tell the Truth , and the American people are sick and tired of it. Even liberals (19 percent) and moderates (20 percent) have lost faith in TV news, although, not surprisingly, self-identified Democrats have the highest confidence at 34 percent compared to 17 percent for Republicans and 17 percent for Independents. This shouldn’t come as any shock given the media’s torrid love affair with Democrat superhero Barack Obama.

That about nails it.  Their lies and omissions are catching up with them.  With FOX News, Talk Radio, and now bloggers exposing them, more and more people are turning them off.  That leaves them with a choice; live and report in reality, or go out of business.  However, since they are liberals, reality is inconceivable.


Will Gingrich Respond to National Review’s Call to Drop out and Endorse Santorum?


After surging in South Carolina,  Newt Gingrich crashed and burned in Florida, and shows no signs or recovering.  After several poor showings in a row, the vultures are circling over the dying campaign.  One influential source, The National Review, has called on him to drop out of the race, and lend his support to Rick Santorum.  Teresa, at Teresamerica, has more…

Today the National Review has taken a bold move and requested that Gingrich drop out of the race and endorse Rick Santorum.  With Santorum’s rise in popularity and continued surge, and Gingrich’s implosion I think this is a good idea.  

It isn’t yet a Romney–Santorum contest, but it could be headed that way. We hope so. Gingrich’s verbal and intellectual talents should make him a resource for any future Republican president. But it would be a grave mistake for the party to make someone with such poor judgment and persistent unpopularity its presidential nominee. It is not clear whether Gingrich remains in the race because he still believes he could become president next year or because he wants to avenge his wounded pride: an ambiguity that suggests the problem with him as a leader. When he led Santorum in the polls, he urged the Pennsylvanian to leave the race. On his own arguments the proper course for him now is to endorse Santorum and exit.

Santorum has been conducting himself rather impressively in his moments of triumph and avoiding characteristic temptations. He is doing his best to keep the press from dismissing him as merely a “social-issues candidate.” His recent remark that losing his Senate seat in 2006 taught him the importance of humility suggests an appealing self-awareness. And he has rightly identified the declining stability of middle-class families as a threat to the American experiment, even if his proposed solutions are poorly designed. But sensible policies, important as they are, are not the immediate challenge for his candidacy. Proving he can run a national campaign is.

This should be seen as the sentinel event that it is.  Some major sources on the right are turning on Gingrich.  The real question is, will Gingrich step aside for the good of the Party and Movement, or will he hang on for the sake of hubris?

The fall of Gingrich can be blamed on the same source that brought about  his surge.  He is well known for debating off the cuff, with little preparation.  Given his incredible fund of information, and his ability to communicate, he could hit them out of the park.  However, swinging for the fences is a double edged sword.  Sluggers like Gingrich do hit a lot of tape-measure shots, but, they also strike out a great deal.  And, in the end, that was his failing.  Playing off the cuff works brilliantly sometimes, and causes embarrassment at others.  That is not a way to run a Presidential campaign, no matter one’s level of intelligence, or grasp of the issues.

Santorum, on the other hand, has engaged in a wise strategy of sticking to issues, and communicating Conservative principals.  For a case in point, kindly take the time to look at his CPAC speech, courtesy of  Catholibertarian…

Slowly but surely, Santorum is uniting Conservatives.  While it might simply be that he is the most consistent Conservative in the field, or that he “isn’t Romney,” he is galvanizing support for the right wing of the GOP.  The real question now is if he can fend off the well funded, and unethical Romney smear machine.  If he does take Michigan, Romney’s home state, it’s a race.

And frankly, that’s where Gingrich comes in.  With Santorum running close to, and sometimes ahead of, Romney in the polls, he needs an additional bump to get over the top.  This is especially vital when Romney’s money advantage comes into play.  While Gingrich is getting 10 percent or so in races, most of his supporters would gravitate towards Santorum.  With an endorsement, almost all would go.  And, since there is little bad blood between the two, Santorum would likely take most Gingrich voters.  That would go far to help Santorum take on Romney and his deep pockets.

Any way it goes, it should get exciting.


Useful Idiot of the Month Nomination Thread


With this short month, I almost forgot about Useful Idiot of the Month.   That would be a shame too, as there are an abundance of candidates.  Here are some of my ideas…

James Clapper: Dur…teh Muslim Brudderhood is leik, secular and stuff.

Jimmy Carter: Ditto

Barak Obama: For all the left reasons.

What are your ideas?  Drop your suggestions in the comment section.  I’ll leave nominations up for two days, then we’ll vote for the rest of the month.

Even the left will like it.  It’s DEMOCRACY!!!


Polling Pointing to Democrat Debacle in November: Even CNN Showing Doom for Democrats


The news just keeps getting worse for the Democrats.  According to CNN, the Democrats are down 7% on a generic ballot to the GOP.

According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday, the GOP leads the Democrats by 7 points on the “generic ballot” question, 52 percent to 45 percent. That 7-point advantage is up from a 3-point margin last month.

The generic ballot question asks respondents if they would vote for a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district, without naming any specific candidates.

“The survey indicates that independents and voters who dislike both parties are starting to break toward the GOP,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “In a year when anger at incumbents is a dominant political force, the key to the election lies among those who aren’t rooting for either side.”

We know the Conservative base is smelling blood, and look to show up in perhaps record numbers.  They are energized to an extent that I’ve never before seen,  but what of Independents?

Republicans also have a large and growing advantage among independents. Sixty-two percent of independents questioned say they would vote for the generic Republican in their district, with three in 10 saying they’d cast a ballot for the generic Democrat. That 32-point margin for the Republicans among independents is up from an 8-point advantage last month.

The CNN report goes on to minimize the “referendum on Obama” that is clearly part of this coming election.  However, after almost two years in office, and much of that with supermajorities in both houses, they passed a Porkulus that accomplished nothing.    They took over two car companies, and created banking regulations that increased costs for us.  They oversaw the loss of millions of jobs.  Did I mention the massive fail that is ObamaCare?  If folks aren’t upset about all of that (and more), they are zombies.

This might be the beginning of some spin to cover Obama while his house of cards falls around him.

While the CNN poll seems dire, the latest Rasmussen poll continues to track towards apocalyptic numbers for the Democrats.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Likely Voters would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate, while 36% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. The survey data was collected on the seven days ending Sunday, September 5, 2010.

This matches the largest advantage ever measured for the Republicans. Three weeks ago, the GOP also held a 12-point lead.

What makes this poll more apocalyptic is not just the numbers, it’s that Rasmussen is the only organization that polls only  likely voters.

Unless something drastic happens, like an asteroid hitting the planet, congressional Democrats should start packing their bags.

The Democrats are Falling Apart: Two Telling Polls-UPDATED


I saw two polls today that have HUGE implications for both the Democrats and Republicans.  Let’s take a look.

First up, Hot Air has the link to this poll from NBC and the WSJ.  While it did sample more Democrats than Republicans, it could be harbinger of death for the Democrats.

Underpinning the gloom: Nearly two-thirds of Americans believe the economy has yet to hit bottom, a sharply higher percentage than the 53% who felt that way in January.

So much for the “Summer of Recovery.”   When the propaganda is so separated from reality, the propaganda fails.

As in recent polls, Americans are split on President Barack Obama’s job performance, with 47% approving and 48% disapproving. But a majority disapproves of his performance on the economy. And six in 10, including 83% of independents and a quarter of Democrats, say they are only somewhat or not at all confident that Mr. Obama has the right policies to improve it. (Emphasis mine)

83% of independents?  Obama needed independents to win two years ago.  Remember, only 20% of the population defines themselves as liberal.  They have to have independents in order to win.   If this is accurate, and it holds, it might represent not only a Democratic loss in November, but a bloodbath (that one if for the libs so they can say I’m wanting to kill Democrats.  Sometimes, you just gotta throw them a bone.).

On the Afghanistan war, which had been an area of strength for the president since he revamped his military strategy, 68% of Americans now feel less confident the war will come to a successful conclusion. Just 44% approve of the president’s job on Afghanistan, down from a majority who approved in March, the last time the poll addressed the topic.

I wonder if giving medals for “Courageous restraint” has anything to do with the results?  Do I really need to expand on that?

I didn’t think so.

Voters appear evenly split on which party they hope will control Congress after November. But Republicans retain an advantage among those more likely to turn out. Among those most interested in the election, half favor GOP control and 39% support the Democrats. One positive movement for Democrats: That 11-point gap is down from 21 points in June.

Looking at the results, you can’t help but think that there are major problems on the horizon for the Democrats.  Then, when you consider that there were more Democrats than Republicans in the poll, it looks even worse.  Dems had a 9 point advantage in the poll (7, when counting “leaners”), and the results still look landslide.

Now, just when the Democrats would think that things are bad, it gets even worse.  Rasmussen has also released a most telling poll.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters think the agenda of Democrats in Congress is extreme. Thirty-four percent (34%) say it is more accurate to describe the Democratic agenda as mainstream.

Voters are more narrowly divided when it comes to the agenda of congressional Republicans. Forty-five percent (45%) of voters view the GOP agenda as mainstream, but nearly as many (40%) say it’s more accurate to call it extreme. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided.

The Political Class, however, has dramatically different views of the agendas of the two parties from what Mainstream voters think. Ninety-one percent (91%) of the Political Class say the Democratic agenda in Congress is in the mainstream, but 70% of Mainstream voters see that agenda as extreme.

Can you spell o.u.t. o.f. t.o.u.c.h?

It’s useful to consider that Rasmussen polls ONLY likely voters.  Again, this could indicate a bloodbath in November.  (Twice in one post, libs…enjoy!)

OK, here is where it gets dicey.  It’s been my thinking that the wins by the Democrats in 2006 and 2008 were a referendum on Bush, not the public embracing the “Obama Agenda.”  After 6 and then 8 years of the GOP NOT governing with Conservative principals, and the MSM constantly bombarding the public with propaganda, the public was ready for a change.  So they chose Obama.  Add to that the historical nature of the Obama’s campaign, and America was ready to do something that it never had done before,  the win was complete.

Then, the people got a taste of the “Obama Agenda,” and the general dishonesty and corruption of the left, discontent has grown to the point that the polling describes.

This, however, is the point of danger.  The Democrats made the assumption that their wins represented a mandate (or they didn’t care-flip a coin).  They made the mistake of assuming that the general public would support their agenda.  The results are obvious.  They wanted change, just not Obama’s “brand.”  The Rasmussen polls shows that while the GOP is in much better shape than the Democrats, there is enough doubt about their agenda to cause them to make the same mistakes.  The Democrats thought the US was ready for a “progressive” utopia.  They were wrong.  On the same token, the GOP cannot necessarily assume that the US is ready to shed all of Fedzilla, at least not yet.

All of this leaves us with a job: education.  We have to do a great job explaining our ideas, and why they are not only what the founders envisioned, but that they actually WORK.  I know for myself, I’ve spent much of my time ripping the plans of the other side.  I’ve not spent enough time discussing why small government, local control, free markets, and all the rest, work.  It’s out there.  All the evidence that we ever needed is right there.  It’s abundantly clear.  We need to move forward, but we have to explain the “why” of it, and they display the positive results.

I believe that we will have a fight on our hands.  The “progressives,” the MSM, the Unions, and the like, will all try to stop us.  However, we have reality on our side.  And after Obama’s policies have completely failed, we can reach out to a public that is more ready to embrace those truths.

Update: This one is HUGE.

In every week of his presidency until now, Barack Obama has enjoyed a majority approval rating in the Gallup Poll from people earning les s than $2,000 per month. But that changed in the Gallup survey conducted from Aug. 2-8, when only 49 percent of Americans in that income bracket said they approve of the job Obama is doing.

In a poll released today, Gallup asked Americans that they thought was the most important problem facing the country. The top two problems cited were the economy in general and unemployment and jobs. Thirty percent said the economy in general was the most important problem, while 28 percent said it was unemployment and jobs.

This is one of the core constituencies of the Democrats.  It would appear that even the dependent classes are starting to turn on Obama.  Should I say potential bloodbath again?


Support for ObamaCare Below 40%, According to Rasmussen


I had been following Gallup for polling data as of late, but this came up in searching today.   Here is the latest from Rasmussen.

Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan.

Half the survey was conducted before the Senate voted late Saturday to begin debate on its version of the legislation. Support for the plan was slightly lower in the half of the survey conducted after the Senate vote.

Prior to this, support for the plan had never fallen below 41%. Last week, support for the plan was at 47%. Two weeks ago, the effort was supported by 45% of voters.

Intensity remains stronger among those who oppose the push to change the nation’s health care system: 21% Strongly Favor the plan while 43% are Strongly Opposed.

Rasmussen Reports is continuing to track public opinion on the health care plan on a weekly basis. Next week’s Monday morning update will give an indication of whether these numbers reflect a trend of growing opposition or are merely statistical noise.

Of course, this blows the lefty polls that state that “70% of the people want a public option!!”  If they wanted a public option, which is in the House and Senate versions, why are they overwhelmingly against it.

Now, since these numbers don’t agree with the administrations point of view, Rasmussen will be accused of all sorts of things.  however, will they level Those same claims at Gallup?

So, the people are finding out more about the plans, and they are now trending towards the view that government should have no role!  Perhaps this is why the Democrats refused to honor the promise of have the bills for public display, or why they wanted them passed so quickly.  Remember folks, they wanted this done before the August recess!

BTW, two polls that state that 70% of people want a public option were done by CBS (June) and ABC (November).
